Hi Everyone,

Surprised I'm the first to ask about this but has anyone used/tested Neo Connect with Indigo:

If not these, what else are people using the automate their blinds with Indigo?

Thanks

Joe

I just did a little cursory check of the controller, it's kind of neat but it seems like a pretty closed system. They have an Alexa skill but no open API that I can see and without that it would be a total hack (if it was even possible).

For me I automated my binds over a decade ago with the humble Add-A-Motor curtain controller which is a simple on/off device that I plug into an Insteon plug. I wrote a plugin for it (but never published it) that gives me almost total control over the position it ends up in. For $99 it was a great purchase. It was a perfect solution to open shades that never had any kind of automation options.

I just got this back when I did a tech inquiry to Neo asking about a RESTful API:

We don't have an open RESTful API at the moment. We'll migrate our backend at some point in the next months and we may create an open API at the same time.

What we do have is an open API for local communication using TCP/IP or local HTTP GET commands.


So I'm thinking it will work if I put a little elbow grease in...

Has anyone explored this further or have details of the TCP/IP or local HTTP GET commands?

TIA
